Successful Cyprus tour start by ‘Cantate’ choir

The 26 choristers of Portsmouth Cathedral choir ‘Cantate’ gave an outstanding recital at Ayia Kyriaki church on Saturday evening, 21 October.

Their performance included works by Vaughan Williams, Macmillan, Buxehude, Stanford, Faure, Brahms, Goodall, Gjeilo, Lauridsen and Howells and an interesting version of the Beatles song Blackbird, by the male choral scholars.

‘Brilliant’, ‘wonderful’ ‘superb’ were just some of the comments heard from the congregation as they were leaving.

The choir also sang at the sung Eucharist on Sunday 22 October when then gave a delightful performance of the Mass: Dark in E and the Motet, Ubi caritas by Gjeilo.

We look forward to the choir returning to Paphos in the future.
